Learner Guide - Plagiarism


Palgiarism is presenting someone else’s work or ideas as your own, with or without their consent, by incorporating it into your work without full acknowledgement. All published and unpublished material, whether in manuscript, printed or electronic form, is covered under this definition. Plagiarism may be intentional or reckless, or unintentional. Under the regulations for examinations, intentional or reckless plagiarism is a disciplinary offence.

At Luton Adult Learning we have highly trained staff, our teachers are skilled at spotting plagiarised work.  If you read something and would like to use the idea, put it in your own words and cite or acknowledge it as someone else's words or ideas with an internal citation.   Unsure?  See youtube clip below Understanding Plagiarism below for more information.
